What a fun way to compare and contrast the social classes of the Aztec, Maya and Inca Empires! My students love this fun civilizations of the Americas activity. First, students read a two-page Aztec, Maya and Inca social classes close reading that includes primary source excerpts. Then, students get into groups and compete against each other in a displayed class game board in Google Slides or PowerPoint. Each advancing slide has one of twelve comprehension questions about the social class informational text.

In a fun, creative close, students that answer the most answers correct in class get to choose a number that reveals their hidden destiny as a person alive in that era. The students get to read aloud who they were and details about their lives!


✅  A two-page social class focused close reading

✅  A 12 comprehension question Google Slides game-board to display

✅  A PowerPoint option game-board to display

✅  An answer key

✅  A "choose your destiny slide" with fun social class destinies for winning students to discover what their lives were like as a "people alive during the era!"

This skilled-based Common Core literacy lesson can be done individually, in pairs or in groups! Teachers can simply assign in the Google Classroom. This works great in a Google 1:1 or on paper in Any classroom!
